I’m definitely going to sound like every other blogger out there when I say I can’t believe that it’s August! That also means that it’s almost time to start my senior year of college. Yup, senior year. It feels like I was just entering college yesterday so it’s crazy to think I only have one year left (and I still have no clue what I’m doing).
Also just like every other blogger, I wanted to post about my July favorites! July was one of the most hectic and fun months of 2017 for me so far. I was able to try and experience a ton of new things (like traveling across the country by myself) which I’m so grateful for. It definitely had its ups & downs, but overall, July was a pretty good month for me.
July has definitely been the month of blogging for me. I’ve consistently posted twice a week (yay!) and have tried to engage more with other bloggers. I went from having a little over 200 Instagram followers to almost 350, and from 300 Twitter followers to 450! That is definitely success in my book. I hope to keep putting out content that I’m proud of and reach a larger audience in August.
I have always loved the look of off-the-shoulder tops but was never able to find one that was comfortable and didn’t ride up on my shoulders every two seconds. That is until I bought this one from Cotton On when I was in Los Angeles! It is extremely flattering and looks perfect with a delicate necklace. It’s also lightweight, which means I can wear it during the summer although it has long sleeves. I also bought the shirt in black which will be perfect for the fall!
This month I took my mom to see Ed Sheeran as her Mother’s Day gift! We saw him at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. When I found out he was performing in Philly the day before my flight to Los Angeles (which was out of Newark, New Jersey), I knew that it would be the perfect present. It may have been a little selfish of a gift considering I’m obsessed with Ed, too, but we both had a great time! This was my fifth time seeing him and I’m excited to see him again in Boston in September! I also wrote a blog post about my favorite songs by him which you guys should definitely check out!
On June 25th, I adopted an 11-week-old rabbit! I named her Aspen and she has quickly become one of the loves of my life. She has been an amazing tool for my anxiety. She loves to cuddle. If I’m having a panic attack, she will sit on my chest while I pet her. One time she even licked my nose (I may have started crying tears of joy…). I’m still obsessed with my other rabbit, Stan, of course. He is more of a rambunctious rabbit while she’s calmer. At first, he was not happy to have another rabbit in his territory. He started to warm up to her over time, and after spending a five-hour car ride in a carrier together, they became best buds. Now they cuddle with each other! I moved them into the same cage and they love it.
Did you guys do anything fun during July?
